Ahrum Lee is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Sociology and Anthropology Department at Bucknell University. He is a doctoral candidate in sociology at the University of Virginia. His dissertation is a critique of "scientific" approaches to examining emotions; and, as such, is an attempt to introduce Heideggerian "mood" to sociological understandings of everyday life.
While engaging primarily with metaphysics, he is enamored with various articulations of "the arts", which include (but is not limited to), painting and sculpture, cinema and television, popular and classical music, as well as literature. Within this realm of interest, he has written a Master's Thesis on the reputation of Andy Warhol, given presentations on identity construction on Twitter, and taught courses on media and popular culture.
